More firms worldwide are offering services in multiple disciplines—law, accounting and consulting—than ever before. Multidisciplinary Practices and Partnerships: Lawyers, Consultants & Clients helps you understand and benefit from this controversial and growing global trend—without violating ABA rules.
This book explains the various types of MDPs, where they are permitted, and the advantages and disadvantages of each. You'll find in-depth coverage of ABA and CPA rules on professional independence, conflicts of interest, confidentiality, and other critical issues. The author, a pioneer in the field, shows how mergers, branch offices, alliances, networks and other methods are being used to create large, international, multidisciplinary firms. You'll come away with a complete understanding of the key issues in the debate, how they are likely to be resolved by the U.S. and non-U.S. bars, and how to prepare accordingly.
